Instructions for Completing Apprentice Work Progress Record
This is the permanent record of your apprenticeship. Make the entries in ink and have your supervisor sign each month’s report.
The original should be kept for your records and the monthly total hours recorded electronically through the AJAC Apprentice Tracking System (ATS): http://ats.ajactraining.org.
We recommend that you start a binder to keep these hard copy record sheets. The worksheet is the work record for one year. Each column represents one month. Mark the number of hours worked on each month on the row that lists the skill from the apprenticeship standards. Total the hours you worked each month on each row and record that number in the row titled “Total Hours”. Report the total in the ATS.
The hours from your work progress record are due at AJAC by the 15th of the month following the month you just completed (i.e. hours worked in January are due by February 15th). Failure to report hours by the 15th of the month may result in loss of hours and other disciplinary action. Apprentices may not count more than 184 straight hours per month toward the required hours for completion.
Apprentices can determine which textbooks are required for their class by accessing the following PDF’s for each occupation:
- Plastic Process Technician
- Precision Metal Fabricator
- Industrial Maintenance Technician
- Tool & Die Maker
Questions regarding textbooks? Please contact Lance Campbell or reference your class start letters.
To make the tuition process smoother at our partner colleges, AJAC collects and records tuition payments for apprentices. Tuition is collected for all apprentices. Please refer to your class start letter for specific payment details.
AJAC Has Three Options to Pay for Tuition:
- PayPal: Please visit ajactraining.org/tuition.
- Mail Check: Make check payable to AMJTC. Mail check to: P.O. Box 80727 Seattle, WA 98108.
AJAC will email class start letters one month prior to your first day of class. This letter details your class location, night of the week, registration, procedures, college registration paperwork (in some cases), tuition, payment details and required textbooks.
Currently, AJAC does not offer financial assistance for tuition or books. If you have trouble paying for tuition or books, please speak with your employer or contact AJAC before the quarter starts to discuss payment options.
